Guest Richard Roeper

Gene Siskel, the long-time critic and co-host of 'Siskel & Ebert', left some big shoes to fill in 1999. His passing left a seat in the balcony and the need for a new co-host that could stand up to the venerable Roger Ebert. After nearly thirty co-hosts tried out, the seat was offered to Richard Roeper.

Film critic and columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times, he's had his columns syndicated around the world and written for magazines like 'Esquire', 'Playboy', 'Spy', and 'Entertainment Weekly'. His newspaper column has appeared in the Chicago Sun-Times since 1987 - and here's something you might not know - in 2000, he was named as one of People Magazine's 50 most eligible bachelors.

He co-hosted 'Ebert and Roeper' for eight years before moving on to become host of 'Starz Inside,' a monthly documentary series. He reviews new movies every week for Starz and on richardroeper.com - and soon will be a contributor to ReelzChannel. So when it comes to talking about the Oscars, Richard's the guy to go to.
